A hatter had Just finished soiling a
hat to as Irishman.
"The Irish," he said, 'have
of a very graceful shape; long
oral, and aery laVge. The American
has a head shaped very much like the
Irishman's only it Is smaller and
"The German has a spuare head,
flat on top and very wide between the
ears. A German's bat always looks
too big tor him. It looks so becanae
it is so. In order that It may encom-
pass the head's great breadth it must
be bought a little too loose in Its other
dimensions. Some German's, who are
particular, have their hats made to
order ton this account.
'I sell hats all over the United
States, and I find that heads run big-
ger in the West than anywhere else.
The Chicago mas has the biggest head
In America. The Southern baa the
smallest. We Easterners—Fhlladel-
phians, New Yorkers, and Boetonlans
—all have heads about the same sisa.
That size Is, on the average 7. The
Westerner's sixe Is, 7%. The South-
erner's is 6%."—Philadelphia Record.
